Singing Starling Sounds Like A Mix Between A Dinosaur And R2D2

Dinosaurs captured the attention of most of us when we were younger. There is just something about the thought of giant lizards walking the earth that captivates us.

Even when we get older, we may continue to have an interest in dinosaurs, although it does tend to change over the passage of time.

For one thing, we come to realize that we only know the tip of the iceberg when it comes to everything there is to know about those terrible lizards. After all, they have been gone for millions of years.

That doesn’t stop Hollywood from having dinosaurs in many movies and often, they fill in the gaps in our knowledge with something that makes sense for the part. This may include the types of foods that they ate, the way that they looked, and even the way that they sounded.

On that subject, nobody can say with any certainty what a dinosaur sounded like. We have some idea and perhaps we may be closer than most of us think, but it is still guesswork, at the very least.

Every once in a while, however, we may hear something that puts us in mind of what a dinosaur may sound like. That is what Sarah Tidwell had in the following video.

In the video, you can hear a Eurasian starling and it is one of the more interesting-sounding birds we have ever heard. Obviously, it is able to mimic sounds quite nicely and this one does a good job of R2-D2 and other Star Wars characters.

When they slow down the sound of the bird, however, something interesting happens. The sound of the bird takes on an entirely different scope and suddenly, you wonder if it isn’t actually how dinosaurs sounded when they walked the earth.

In the end, it’s really up to you to decide whether it is authentic or not. One thing is certain, however, it sounds amazing. Check out the video below:
